-- Vulnerability Details:
These vulnerabilities allow attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Trend Micro ServerProtect. Authentication
is not required to exploit these vulnerabilities.

The specific flaws exist within the StCommon.dll library and are
reachable remotely through a DCE/RPC endpoint on TCP port 5168 bound to
by the service SpntSvc.exe. The RPC endpoint is exposed from
TmRpcSrv.dll with the following IDL stub information:

// opcode: 0x00, address: 0x65741030
// uuid: 25288888-bd5b-11d1-9d53-0080c83a5c2c
// version: 1.0

error_status_t rpc_opnum_0 (
[in] handle_t arg_1,
[in] long trend_req_num,
[in][size_is(arg_4)] byte overflow_str[],
[in] long arg_4,
[out][size_is(arg_6)] byte arg_5[],
[in] long arg_6

The upper half of the 'trend_req_num' DWORD RPC argument from above is
used within TmRpcSrv.dll as an index into a call table. It must
specifically be 0x000a which results in a call to StRpcSrv.65673970().
The original arguments to the RPC endpoint are then passed to this
called routine:

657416E6 mov eax, opnum0_call_table[eax*4]
657416ED test eax, eax
657416EF jnz short loc_65741707
65741707 loc_65741707:
65741707 mov [ebp+var_4], 0
6574170E mov edx, [ebp+sizeof_arg5]
65741711 push edx
65741712 mov edx, [ebp+arg5_array]
65741715 push edx
65741716 mov edx, [ebp+sizeof_overflow_str]
65741719 push edx
6574171A mov edx, [ebp+overflow_str]
6574171D push edx
6574171E push ecx ; trend_req_num
6574171F call eax ; call handler

The lower half of the 'trend_req_num' DWORD RPC argument is then used
within StRpcSrv.dll as an index into a second call table. The value of
this lower half controls the code flow to the following vulnerabilities
and is hereto referred to as the 'subcode'.

--[ Vulnerability One
A subcode value of either 0x0011 or 0x0017 results in the following

65674D7F push ebx ; overflow_str
65674D80 call CMON_NetTestConnection

A stack overflow occurs within the routine CMON_NetTestConnection() due
to an unbounded widechar wsprintf() into a 44 byte stack based buffer as
shown in the following relevant excerpt:

65634AC5 xor ecx, ecx
65634AC7 lea edx, [esp+65Ch+Name] ; 44 byte stack buffer
65634ACB mov cx, [eax]
65634ACE push ecx
65634ACF push ebx ; 1st arg
65634AD0 push offset str_SC ; "\\\\%s\\%c$"
65634AD5 push edx ; LPWSTR
65634AD6 call ds:wsprintfW ; vuln!

--[ Vulnerability Two
A subcode value of either 0x0008 or 0x0009 results in calls to
CMON_ActiveUpdate() and CMON_ActiveRollback() respectively. Both of
these routines subsequently call StCommon.65631220() which can result
in a stack overflow due to an unbounded widechar lstrcat() into a 2k
stack-based buffer as shown in the following relevant excerpt:

65631311 lea edx, [esp+0A78h+buf]
65631318 push ebp ; lpString2
65631319 push edx ; lpString1
6563131A call ebx ; lstrcatW ; stack overflow

The resulting stack overflows can be leveraged to execute arbitrary
code under the privileges of the SYSTEM user.
